I have a laundry list of things to say here and I'll probably vomit them out in no particular order but here goes.
First EEstor is NOT pulling a Steorn! The electric car company they are partnering with is respectable, well known, And most importantly satisfied
enough with the progress towards production that they have put 3.8 million dollars worth of their money into Eestor. Most importantly though the car
company did it the smart way and is adding money solelly based on EEstor being able to hit predefined and agreed upon milestones to production. This
means whether ours and academias concerns are not lessened the people paying to bring this product to fruition are satisfied enough to keep writing
Second I have been following the EEstor saga since 2005 when the first rumors etc crept out about their product. EEstor has not once lied to anyone
that we know of yet and considering the heavy hitters investing in them they obviously haven't lied to them either.
Third and pretty darn important!! We all more or less know that quantum technological leaps that rock the boat can be killed strictly by bad
publicity. EEstor is doing the sensible thing and keeping people out of the loop.
Fourth... Well what can I say in the last few months we've seen some truly amazing events take place in labs around the world. There are now
demonstrably working quantum computers, several different groups are experimenting with negative refractivity index metamaterials which seem to be
able to counteract the casimir effect, and all of the other misc stuff that was thought impossible or impractical until recently. I would be highly
skeptical of criticisms from EEstor's COMPETITORS both in academia and the business realm. Keep in mind afterall a good many of those academics are
and have been working with similar materials towards similar goals, the only difference is they FAILED!
Jealousy, backstabbing, thinly veilled intellectual property theft, and other nastiness is a daily occurence in todays competition for labspace,
funding, tenure, and market share. The fact that the people criticizing them are all competitors some of which stand to lose credibillity and or their
livelihood if EEstor suceeds. Do you make it a habit of trusting the Coke delivery guys asessment of the newest pepsi product? I would hope the answer
